(no subject)

Just got back from my interview. Thanks for all the well-wishes ;) I think it went pretty well, although they don't really give you any feedback so it's hard to tell. Their questions were a little more confusing than in my other interviews... I think it was mostly in the wording. And things like "besides your classroom duties, what would you do to help improve the school?" What do you say to that? "I have no life, so basically whatever you asked me to."

Actually, that was pretty much my answer *g*

The funny thing was that the girl who was there to interview after me... was in my class at UOP! And we had the same useless advisor! How weird is that?

Okay, this is way funny

Road to Hell Is Paved With… Liberals?

Conservatives are more secure in their beliefs that they will not go to hell and that they know someone who also won't suffer eternally, according to a June poll of 10,000 Beliefnet members.

Liberals expressed less confidence in their chances of escaping the underworld and in their ability to identify the damned, the poll shows.

Of those who identified themselves as conservatives, 46 percent replied "not a chance" in rating their likelihood of meeting a fiery end, as compared with 28 percent of liberals. Among born-again Christians, the most confident of their prospects of avoiding hell, 55 percent replied "not a chance," as compared with 21 percent of Roman Catholics.

More than half of those polled believe they know at least one person headed for Satan's clutches. Among conservatives, 64 percent say they do, and among liberals, 47 percent.

Of respondents who think they know someone on the highway to hell, 61 percent are men and 54 percent are women. Nearly 25 percent of those polled believe their family members are on a path to perdition, Beliefnet reports.

In addition, those same people think hell is a place of fire and torment.

Another gem from BlameBush (http://blamebush.typepad.com/blamebush/)!

Redeploy...to VICTORY!

JohnkerryJohn Kerry voted for the war in Iraq before he voted against it. It’s a lie invented by the GOP propaganda machine and obediently repeated ad nauseum by the right-wing media in a concerted effort to falsely portray a decorated war hero thrice wounded in Vietnam as a spineless waffler who wouldn’t wipe his own backside without first checking the public opinion polls. But in truth, Kerry has always been opposed to the illegal and immoral war in Iraq. He was simply waiting until the voters had matured enough emotionally to agree with him. Now that all the polls indicate that most Americans believe the entire War on Terror is a complete waste of time, the esteemed senator from Massachusetts feels we’re at last ready to support his call for a complete and unconditional withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Iraq.

Make no mistake, this is NOT a retreat, but merely a phased "redeployment" of our troops back to the States, where they can be reunited with their loved ones and then tried for possible war crimes. There’s no shame is running away and living to fight another day – preferably while wearing a baby blue helmet. Indeed, it takes a strong man to swallow his pride and turn the other cheek in the face of adversity. Think of all the lives that would have been spared if on that sixth day of June, 1944, Gen. Eisenhower had put his enormous ego aside and brought our boys home, rather than force them to storm a silly beach in an illegal and immoral war against a country that never attacked us. Imagine if Jingus Khan had the courage to end his reign of terror and redeploy his troops back to Mongolia, rather than continue to burn and pillage in a fashion reminiscent of the United States Marine Corps. Imagine all the people living life in peace.

Sadly, the chickenhawk-controlled congress doesn’t have the guts to flee like real men, and essentially told Kerry to take his amendment and "redeploy" it to a certain area of his anatomy. However, the measure went over gangbusters with Al Qaeda, a testament to Sen. Kerry’s skill as a diplomat. If John Kerry can find common ground with a sworn enemy of the United States, just think of the kind of president he’ll make.
